The latest update of the previous Vancouver Port update date on 6 Jul 23
Talks between striking dock workers and their employers resumed this past weekend after four days away from the negotiation table.
The talks had stalled on Tuesday and the two sides broke off negotiations. Canada's federal and provincial governments had urged the parties to restart talks, while on Saturday Alberta Premier Danielle Smith in a statement said her province supports an immediate recall of parliament to consider legislation to resolve the work stoppage.

The gap between the two parties is still large. If no temporary solution is reached early this week, all eyes are now on the Federal Government to step in withback-to-workk legislation to end the strike. There has been no announcement from the lines or ports regarding storage/demurrage/detention. But we must remind all clients, that even once a deal is reached orback-to-workk legislation is approved in parliament, there will be a 3-4+ week backlog to get cleared out. Any storage, demurrage, detention, chassis rental fee's, additional handlin,g etc, will be the iimporter'sresponsibility to pay
